Solique is a DJ and producer duo well-known for their percussive and melodic techno. The relationship between Julien and Can enables a collective creativity. Even though both are partners, friends and roommates, who share the passion for electronic music, the joint playing and producing connects Julien and Can more than their long lasting friendship ever could. Solique performs like a rare feeling of a direct, mutual connection with meditative and assertive affairs that challenge the listener with unexpected, but intuitive turns and interrupting grooves.
The Austrian and Swede have been playing as a duo for 4 years. As teenagers, both listened to Hip Hop which was very helpful feature for their career as electronic music producers, because it characterized their percussive and rhythmic style. Moreover, Julien is an experienced sound designer and worked for a long time in the Bootshaus Cologne, where he continuously experienced the full load of techno and fell in love with it.
Sources of inspiration are Denis Horvat, Fideles, Dixon, Adriatique. All these influences along with their shared time in Australia shaped the sound of Solique to what it is today: percussive, melodic deep house as well as melodic techno oriented to tribal sounds.

Mysterious man behind the DJ desk - mentally full of music: It’s vintash. DJ and producer based in Cologne. Vintash is a musician through and through. He was born into a very musical family, studied sound design and is a gifted artist. Before he settled in Cologne, vintash lived in Vienna for many years where he discovered the very individual Viennese techno scene as part of a DJ collective. Like a reflection of his personality, his musical style is also very polarizing: deep, melodic sounds with strong emotions alternate with hard and very percussive techno in a positive way. Vintash’s productions are floating and hypnotic stories with a very deep and memorable sense for melodies that stick in mind.
Vintash has always had a passion for collecting music. He loves the different facets and styles and then brings this expertise to his tracks. His individual sound is inspired by tech house, dark melodic progressive techno, ethereal techno and inspirational sources such as: Dizharmonia, Oliver Winters and Township Rebellion. All his experience, his time in Vienna and his nature, create an artist who always picks up his listeners. Vintash is the embodiment of authenticity. No fake. All real.
